Second Sunday of Lent
Worship @ 9:30am
In the Sanctuary and streamed online
Rev. Michael Frady preaching
"Does God Test Us?"
In this season of Lent we follow Jesus into a symbolic wilderness period for deep reflection and self-assessment. This year, our focus will be less upon the specifics of how Jesus was tested and more upon ourselves. Does God test us like he allowed Jesus to be tempted by Satan. It seems likely, that if God tested Jesus, then we who follow are tested too. Have you ever wondered why we are tested? Are we being punished, or is there something more?
I look forward to sharing thoughts on this topic when we gather for worship. Until then, be well and God bless you!
